3D Viewer

The DriveWorks 3D Viewer lets you view DriveWorks 3D files (.drive3d) and other 3D file formats in 3D. These file formats can be opened and viewed inside the 3D Viewer and saved out as a DriveWorks 3D file (.drive3d).

For enhanced viewing see the DriveWorks 3D File document.

Click the menu button to access the file actions.


Will open a DriveWorks 3D (.drive3d) or another supported format.

The supported formats are:

  • Stereo Lithography (.stl) file
  • Object (.obj) file
  • Inventor Assembly (.iam) file
  • Inventor Part (.ipt) file
  • SolidEdge Part (.par)
  • SolidEdge Sheet Metal (.psm) file
  • SolidEdge Assembly (.asm) file

STL and OBJ files are imported in meters. It is important that any imported STL or OBJ files are saved in meters from the original 3D package.

If the STL and OBJ files are not imported in meters then a Scale value can be applied to the model in a DriveWorks 3D File document to scale the model to the correct size.
